Atletico Madrid keep their plans to pursue the Polish right-back after losing Kieran Trippier to Newcastle United.

Teamtalk newspaper, citing sources from The Sun, said that Atletico Madrid is still pursuing a plan to recruit Aston Villa defender Matty Cash. The Spanish team was interested in Matty Cash in the summer transfer market after they sold Kieran Trippier to Newcastle United.
Despite the interest from Atletico Madrid, the Polish national player remained at the Villa Park team. Missing Matty, Atletico Madrid redirected and successfully recruited Daniel Wass. Even so, the Danish player proved not suitable for Diego Simeone’s tactical system.
The Polish defender is on Atletico Madrid’s radar.
Therefore, Los Rojiblancos still retains its plan to recruit Matty when the 2022 summer transfer market opens. At the same time, the Polish national player expressed interest in the scenario of switching to playing in La Liga. That is a big advantage for Atletico Madrid.
The biggest rival of the La Liga champions in this deal is Man United. Coach Ralf Rangnick needs more quality additions at right-back in the context of both Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot having erratic form.
With abundant financial potential, Man United can spend a huge amount to convince Aston Villa to release people. The ability to attack and defend rhythmically, abundant physical resources became the outstanding strength of right-back Matty.
